Ulli vada

Ulli vada aka Onion pakoda is a quick and easy to make snack since most of the items would be available at home.

Gram flour – 50 grams
Onion – 150 grams
Green Chillies – 10 grams
Red chilly powder – 10 grams
Fennel seeds – 5 grams
Coriander leaves
Water – ½ cup
Oil – to fry

Salt to taste


  • Finely chop the onions and green chillies.
  • In bowl, mix the onions, green chillies, gram flour, salt, red chilly powder and mix thoroughly with hand.
  • Crush the fennel seeds and add the same to the above mix. Add coriander leaves.
  • Add water little by little and make into a paste such that you are able to make balls out of it or any other shape.
  • In a kadai pour oil.
  • Check if the oil is hot enough by dropping a pinch of the mix. It should raise in oil immediately.
  • Make small balls of the mix and drop in oil or else drop it in without any shape. I go for the second one.
  • Fry it until it turns dark brown. Remove from oil and keep it in a strainer/tissue paper to remove the excess oil.

Serve hot ulli vada aka onion pakodas with hot tea.

You can add one spoon of rice flour in the mix if you want the pakodas to be more crisp.
